Clerk of the course Tom Ryall said: “It’s good to soft in places on the chases. We’ve protected a bit of fresh ground eight yards from the inner rail.
“We’ve got fresh ground on the hurdle course, which has not been raced on since September. The forecast is dry, until Saturday, but the temperatures have dropped. There might be a slight frost, so we’ve put covers down as a precaution.”
